The Rams will be holding on to one of the best pass rushers in person for several years to come.
Defensive end Robert Quinn has agreed to a four-year extension that keeps him in St. Louis through 2019, agent Tony Fleming told Adam Schefter of ESPN.
The deal reportedly will pay Quinn $66 million, including $41.2 million guaranteed, although the details about that guarantee are not yet available.
The 24-year-old Quinn recorded 19 sacks last season and was a first-team All-Pro. The Rams have the security of knowing that he’s locked up for six more seasons. And Quinn has the security of a whole lot of money — and the comfort of knowing that he could cash in during free agency again in 2020, when he’ll only be 29 years old.
